Last year was one of change in the world of CD-i especially without the availability of 'The World of CD-i' and even the absence of 'The Black Moon Project' for the most part. It went a little quiet over the months and on top of that Interactive Dreams took a nap around October/November. Fortunately we also welcomed a few new active CD-i members including 'Shroo-man' and 'KingArthur' who brought back the enthusiasm to more people. We started the year 2008 when Charles Doty revealed his plans for a Mode 7 style CD-i racer but we haven't heard from him since. Oldergames ended business in January which was bad news to the CD-i homebrew scene. The rest of the year was very quiet as stated above but in December the best news was all the information Shroo-man provided us of the japanese exclusive CD-i game "Cyber Soldier Sharaku" (more here soon).
So that's it. I'm happy to say next year we'll be here as always to complete Interactive Dreams with all information available although you never know how things go. I would like to thank you all for your support and enthusiasm for the Philips CD-i system. We'll together make sure to keep CD-i alive in 2009. What will be ahead of us? Updates on CD-i Emulator? Homebrew CD-i programming by Charles Doty? More japanese CD-i games? Discworld CD-i? One thing is for sure: There are numerous things keeping the format interesting. Happy Christmas!
